NOTICE: In response to the Executive Order from NC Governor Roy Cooper to suspend large gatherings, Blumenthal Performing Arts closed all of its venues through April 12, 2020 as part of the collective effort to contain community spread of coronavirus. Unfortunately, we have not been able to identify an alternate date that works. Tosco Music Party on April 11, 2020 is cancelled. 

While this is disappointing, we fully support these decisions. Everyone’s health, safety, and well-being is our primary concern.

Tosco Music is a small nonprofit arts organization, and we are requesting your help. We are inviting all of our loyal TMP fans and supporters to help alleviate the financial burden this cancellation will create. Please consider converting your April TMP ticket purchase to a tax deductible donation. We appreciate your support during this challenging time.

Three options for your April 11 TMP tickets:

Option 1: Convert your ticket order to a donation. Use this link before April 11 to authorize your tax deductible donation. This will help sustain Tosco Music as we move through and beyond this pandemic.

Option 2: Roll your tickets forward. Use this link before April 11 to authorize the value of your order to be credited for future use. This option allows ticket holders to purchase tickets of the same or lesser value to any future Tosco Music or CarolinaTix event. April 11 TMP tickets holders who wish to use this option, and also retain their same seats at a future fall, spring or winter TMP, must also contact us to let us know by April 11. Tosco Music will then coordinate individually with you and Blumenthal Performing Arts before tickets go on sale for the season to assure your seats are reserved.

Upcoming TMP Dates: August 29, 2020, February 6, 2021 and April 10, 2021. 

Option 3: Refund. If neither option 1 nor 2 will work for you, you can request a refund now using this link or, if you do nothing, your tickets will automatically be refunded in 30 days. For more information, visit CarolinaTix.org.

Blumenthal Performing Arts box office may be contacted at (704) 372-1000 Monday-Friday 10pm-6pm, or by email at tickets@blumenthalarts.org. 

We’re grateful for your support and understanding, and look forward to gathering with you again for live music and singalongs as soon as possible!

    The Fab Four - Cancelled

    Tosco Music Beatles Tribute

  • The music parties are an indie-music institution in Charlotte, so popular they often fill a 1,200-seat hall, with a roster of performers that has included everyone from American Idol contestants to The Avett Brothers.

  • What started 20 years ago as a jam session in John Tosco’s living room has bloomed into one of the region’s most unique regional events – and a coveted gig for unsigned artists.

  • A Tosco Music Party is a theatre in the round of sorts for acoustic musicians. It's a medium that breaks down artificial barriers between entertainers and audience.

  • Maybe you’ve never heard the new folk trio out of Chapel Hill or the dulcimer player from Appalachia. Maybe you’ll marvel over a double-necked guitar solo or a 13-year-old classical pianist. Whatever you’re seeking, this incredible, quarterly variety show will make you grateful to have John Tosco curating your musical adventure.

  • Think of Tosco Music Party as the musical equivalent of walking into Ben & Jerry's and saying: 'I'd like a spoonful of everything, please.'
